Love a Duck at Maple Lodge

On arrival at the clubhouse it was quiet so I walked to the Rotunda met Martin Parr we found 5 common snipe,I  missed a Water rail, good numbers of shoveler and teal in display.Martin left for the working party while I waited for the water rail I waited in vain so onwards to another hide where tufted,little grebe and shoveler all obliged in good light,birds were aroused by a sparrowhawk gliding over the phragmites, moved on noting two goldcrests seen in flight.At Lynsters farm of note were 5 greylag 5 Egyptian amongst Canadas.The working party was in full swing so I returned to the club house noting great spotted woodpecker and ring necked parakeets.
